In-form trainer Declan Queally enjoyed a double at Wexford when Uisce Solas took the mares' bumper with the trainer's son Declan in the saddle.

The six-year-old swept into the lead on the outside with a furlong and a half to race and saw off the challenge of Miss Cognac in the final furlong.

The Presenting mare passed the post a length and three parts to the good at 3/1.

Miss Cognac's SP was 14/1. She was seven lengths clear of Lady Loretto at 6/1.

Jockey Queally said: "That was brilliant, it's my first double on the track. It's great for her owner Anthony Murphy who had put a lot of money and time into her.

"She was a bit leery when she hit the front but she had plenty left. She is in at Punchestown next Wednesday. If the owners want a day out we might chance it because it wasn't an overly hard race for her today.

"We might be able to get black type with her. Her sister wasn't beaten far in a black type race two weeks ago.

"Tommy Kiely, John's nephew, owns the broodmare and they look a decent family. The mother was very decent and bolted up in a 30-runner bumper at Navan."
